    firstly, HTML is not a scripting language: it is just a text mark-up language. For comparison, JavaScript is a scripting language.

    In the history of text mark-up languages, it might be depicted something like this:
    Code:
        SGML
        / \
       /   \
      /     \
    HTML    XML
              \
    	   \
    	    \
    	   XHTML
    Textually, I might say that XHTML is a sub-set of XML designed to express HTML-type mark-up in an XML format. Their shared inheritance from SGML means the syntax is very similar (in most cases it can be identical), and XHTML was intentionally designed to include most/all of the same functionality as HTML, including most element names.

    EXtensible HyperText Markup Language(XHTML) documents can be written to operate better than they did before in existing browsers as well as in new browsers.

    XHTML stands for Extensible Hyper test Markup Language. It was developed to make HTML more extensible and increase interoperability with other data formats.

    Basic meaning of html
    XHTML stands for EXtensible HyperText Markup Language
    XHTML is almost identical to HTML 4.01
    XHTML is a stricter and cleaner version of HTML 4.01
    XHTML is HTML defined as an XML application
    XHTML is supported by all major browsers.

    Why XHTML ?

    Many pages on the internet contain "bad" HTML.

    The following HTML code will work fine if you view it in a browser (even if it does NOT follow the HTML rules):
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>This is bad HTML</title>
    <body>
    <h1>Bad HTML
    <p>This is a paragraph
    </body>

    XML is a markup language where documents must be marked up correctly and "well-formed".

    XHTML has a more strict syntax rules in comparison of HTML. XHTML gives you a more consistent, well structured format so that your webpages can be easily parsed and processed by present and future web browsers. It also makes your website more easy to maintain, edit, convert and format in the long run.

    Since XHTML is an official standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), your website will more likely will be more compatible to more browsers and will be rendered more accurately. XHTML combines strength of HTML and XML and XHTML pages can be rendered by all XML enabled devices.

    XHTML defines a quality standard for your webpages, if you follows that then your web pages will be counted quality web pages and W3C certifies those pages with their quality stamp.

    Web developers and web browser designers are constantly discovering new ways to express their ideas through new markup languages. In XML, it is relatively easy to introduce new elements or additional element attributes. The XHTML family is designed to accommodate these extensions through XHTML modules and techniques for developing new XHTML-conforming modules. These modules will permit the combination of existing and new feature sets when developing content and when designing new user agents.

    hello
    I mention some point about XHTML. XHTML stands for EXtensible HyperText Markup Language and is the next step in the evolution of the Internet. The XHTML 1.0 is the first document type in the XHTML family.
    XHTML is almost identical to HTML 4.01 with only few differences. This is a cleaner and more strict version of HTML 4.01. If you already know HTML then you need to give littel attention to learn this latest variant of HTML.

    XHTML (Extensible HyperText Markup Language) is a family of XML markup languages that mirror or extend versions of the widely used Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), the language in which web pages are written.

    XHTML is HTML written as XML.

    XHTML stands for EXtensible HyperText Markup Language and is the next step in the evolution of the Internet. The XHTML 1.0 is the first document type in the XHTML family.

    XHTML was developed by the W3C to help web developers make the transition from HTML to XML. By migrating to XHTML today, web developers can enter the XML world with all of its attendant benefits, while still remaining confident in their content's backward and future compatibility.
